Pat Shurmur Browns head coach has spent years coaching with John Harbaugh. The two spent years together coaching in Philadelphia. Shurmur was the quarterbacks coach and Harbaugh was the special teams coach. So far Harbaugh’s career as head coach has been more special. To be fair, Harbaugh has been at it longer. Shurmur is on the mist of building the Cleveland Browns while Harbaugh inherited a good team.
Today Shurmur has to get his Browns to play smash mouth football. The Browns come into this game as the underdogs. Cleveland always plays the Ravens tough. For the Cleveland Browns they know what this game means to Browns fans. They know how the heart was ripped out of Cleveland fans when the Browns left and relocated to Baltimore. The problem may be if Shurmurs Browns have the talent to play tough today.
The Browns who have been plagued by injuries this season have lost a couple of games they should have won, including both games against the Bengals this season. Shurmur has been faced with trying to keep his teams emotions on high, while Harbaugh just won a game against another coach he is familiar with, His brother’s 49ners team. The Ravens come into Cleveland today well rested.
Shurmur is going to have to get something going early today if he expects to have his Browns go into the fourth quarter with a chance to win. Shurmur would take great pride with a win over his friend Harbaugh today. Lets hope it happens.
